C elegans?
Is this not C elegans based on location, single AM line, and the dashes seen in the dark patch near the apex?

I am sorry, but I am not following your comment. The identification was not C. elegans.

It took me a long time to come around to agreeing with John and Jane on this one. I have seen them and they never hold their palps like this - so I looked at all the spread plated of the Hypena and the Loxosege, and I have to agree this is also the only ID I can find.
